Overview

Our take on the Kicker KS68

Road noise can often obscure the all-important high frequencies in your music. Result? Your tunes sound dull and lifeless, with poor stereo imaging. Kicker's got a solution, thanks to the power of titanium. The KS68 5"x7"/6"x8" speakers feature 3/4" titanium dome tweeters that provide crisp, clean highs to cut through the interference with ease. You'll revel in detailed, realistic sound when you play your favorite tracks.

These 2-ways don't neglect the low frequencies, either. The high-performance polygraphite woofer cones keep their shape when the music's turned up loud so the bass stays true. High-strength steel baskets, heavy-duty internal parts, and rubber surrounds combine to create strong, stable speakers that belt out the bottom. Grilles are not included. (Factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.)


Priced per pair

This is my second set of KS68's. I had them in my '99 Maxima and recently out a pair in my '06 Mazda3.

These speakers sound great. Clear highs, good mid-range and decent bass. I highly recommend these speakers!

Fantastic speaker!

Installed these in my '05 Explorer w/stock HU w/CD. The mids and highs are super clean/clear and realistic. Bass is there when it is supposed to be (for a 6 X 8). Not boomy or muddy.<BR><BR>Highly recommended especially for the price!

Features

Curvilinear Injection-Molded Polygraphite Woofer Cones (CIMP): CIMP is a high performance composite, which remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic distortion. The CIMP consists of a one-piece, injection-molded polygraphite material that moves as a piston, exhibiting power and control.

Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly: The Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly utilizes a high strength steel basket, features a low-profile open design, and provides a solid foundation for the precision aligned motor assembly.

Santoprene Rubber Surrounds: The santoprene rubber surrounds offer unmatched acoustical dampening and UV protection, while allowing extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

Voice Coil Former: Each woofer uses a high-temperature Polyimide film voice coil former for improved sonic and conductive properties, and to prevent thermal-electrical meltdown.

Tinsel Leads: The speaker uses high power tinsel lead wires to prevent broken leads and power loss due to the common use of "insufficient gauge" lead wires.

Titanium Dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" Titanium dome tweeter with neodymium magnets for an extended high frequency response up to 21kHz.

Ferro-Fluid Cooled Tweeter Voice Coils: Each tweeter voice coil is fluid cooled for greater durability.
